Lane Bryant can be cheap if you hit it at a good time. Dots is a great "cheap" store. They have a plus size section and nothing in there is usually more than like $15. There are also some Deb stores that have plus size sections in them. The Deb around me doesn't have the plus size section, but I have been to others that do have it. Target will also have a "women's" section and a lot of their junior/misses clothes go up to size XXL. Kohl's is another great store to find cute clothes that come in plus sizes. They always have good sales too. There's also a store called "Torrid" (I think) that sells clubbing type clothes and whatnot....and I think there's a plus size section there.
Granted, I don't know if these stores are over in the Detroit area. I know there's definitely Targets and Kohls' and Lane Bryants.

I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance. ~ Lee Iacocca
